Dnsmasq is now installed by default, just use it.

In "/etc/dnsmasq.conf" tell dnsmasq to ask the router or isp or whatever.


seems to be not even necessary

It is.


as a result yast wrote in resolv.conf *two* IP as dns,, but also my
routers one
(, the one returned by dhcp). See below the systemctl status.

you are really using the server.

You have to tell your system to _only_ use the dnsmasq service, and you also have to tell your dnsmasq service to make queries up to the router, and not query the entire internet on its own, which can be slower (there may be exceptions). In theory, asking your ISP server should be faster, as Anton pointed out. And this is what the router typically does.
